The mission of PowerAmerica, established in 2014, is to develop advanced manufacturing processes for large-scale production of WBG semiconductors that will enable electronic components to be smaller, faster and more efficient than semiconductors made from silicon. WBG semiconductor technology has the potential to reshape the American energy economy by increasing efficiency in everything that uses a semiconductor, from industrial motors and household appliances to military satellites. PowerAmerica is led by North Carolina State University.
